Ward says she's "getting up there in years" and thinks it's time to get somebody younger on the council to help it run more efficiently.
She has served two terms on the council, starting in May 2010.
So far, one person has filed for the District Five seat, and that's Tom Quintero, who lists his occupation as a U.S. Army officer.
Quintero has lived in the city for two-and-a-half years.
